Moving Towards or Away.
Every decision, every action, and every thought either move us towards our goals or away from them.
Think of everything you do as a vote towards the type of human being you want to become.
This is why it is essential to stand by things on principle, because you help, in a small way, to shape the world closer to your ideal.
This can be anything as trivial as smiling at strangers even when you are tired or upset, to doing the right thing even when no one is looking.
